I've written some basic CSS for a list, with a background image.

But the text's hanging indent is off.  I want all the wrapping text to be flush with the text above it...
.moduletableheadbox {

	width: 309px;

}

.moduletableheadbox h3 {

	background-image: url(/images/box/bg_left_small_header.gif);

	height: 31px;

	width: 309px;

	color: #FFF;

	position: relative;

	top: 0px;

	clip: rect(auto,auto,auto,auto);

	margin: 0px;

	padding-top: 0px;

	padding-right: 0px;

	padding-bottom: 0px;

	padding-left: 0px;

	text-indent: 12px;

}

.moduletableheadbox ul.latestnewsheadbox  {

	background-image: url(/images/box/bg_left_small_content.gif);

	color: #FFF;

	list-style-type:disc;

	list-style-position:inside;

	margin-top: 0px;

	margin-right: 0px;

	padding-bottom:15px;

	font-size: 15px;

	text-indent: 15px;

	margin-left:0px;

	padding-left:0px;

}

.moduletableheadbox a.latestnewsheadbox {

	color: #FFF;

}
 

<div class="moduletableheadbox">
